Our Borderlands 3 Shift Codes Guide features a detailed look at how-to redeem and take advantage of these gifted codes! With Shift Codes you can gain access to cosmetics by obtaining Golden Keys! Those keys lead to you pretty sweet loot within the game, and can help you along your journey as you explore BL3.
What are Shift Codes?
Shift Codes are used to collect Golden Keys which unlock a chest on Sanctuary that will reward you will loot! They are distributed sometimes at random by following Gearbox and the Borderlands social channels, or they can be distributed during various events. You need a Shift Account to use the keys, so be sure to sign up for one.
How-to Get Golden Keys
Golden Keys can be obtained via Shift Codes. These Golden Keys can be used within the game to open up a chest that will give you random rewards. These rewards are usually a few weapons of different types that are at your current level. You can also get armor and grenade mods as well. Golden Keys are redeemable at Sanctuary 3, which is your main hub in Borderlands 3.
Collecting Golden Keys/Rewards
Once you get into the game, you might be wondering how-to obtain the keys. Well, go into a game, open up the game menu, and press Social. You should see an envelope icon at the top, press that to go to the Mail menu. From here, you should be able to collect any Golden Keys you've obtained!
